The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Public Sector Reforms (PSR), Thomas Kusi Boafo, has vowed to campaign against President Akufo-Addo in 2020 if corrupt officials under the John Mahama-led administration are not prosecuted.
In a report by Mynewsgh.com, he revealed that he has communicated his intent to the current president during a recent meeting with him.
According to him, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), supervised an unprecedented level of thievery and as such those involved should be punished.
He added that to let them go scot free would embolden incumbent appointees to do same.
“I have told President Akufo-Addo point blank, due to what I have seen with my naked eyes that if people are not jailed for looting from the state, I will campaign against him,” he stated.
Boafo alleged stated he is ready to tear his academic credentials into pieces and secure a certificate in criminal activities, so he can also steal from the state, if nothing is done to those deemed guilty.
The CEO was speaking during a discussion on the Special Prosecutor Bill, which the president assented to on Tuesday January 2, 2017.
He castigated the NDC due to their vilification of the creation of the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP).
To him, it was wrong for them to presume the OSP was being created to witch-hunt former government appointees.
He continued by saying that a number of rich Ghanaians acquired their wealth using corrupt means. Failure to punish the wrongdoers, he added, would collapse the country.
